Steward Partners and Raymond James Expand into New Jersey, Open Newest Office in Paramus

With its new Paramus location, Steward Partners now has twelve offices in six states and the District of Columbia. The firm, which utilizes Raymond James’ platform and support services, is on pace for another record year, with new partners joining in all twelve locations. Steward’s rapid expansion establishes it as one of the fastest-growing full-service independent partnerships in the country.

“The announcement of Steward’s twelfth location, and four new branches added in this year alone, marks another amazing milestone for the partnership,” said Steward Partners’ CEO, Jim Gold. “We continue to see the company grow in affluent markets, mainly because of the demand we are receiving from highly developed teams in those markets. Advisors across the country have found Steward’s model increasingly attractive.”


“We are thrilled to launch our Paramus office with such an excellent group of advisors,” said Steward Partners’ President, Hy Saporta. “We are expanding in both new and existing markets, and we are adding some remarkable talent along the way. In addition to growing our wealth management team, we have been expanding our reach into international advisory, corporate and executive consulting, succession planning and investment advisory (RIA) capabilities. We doubled the size of our firm in 2016, and we’ve nearly doubled it again in 2017, all while remaining focused on hiring great people who also run great businesses. We are already looking to do the same in 2018.”

“Steward’s model provides us with the traditional capabilities of a wealth management firm and the investment advisory capabilities of an RIA,” said Baker. “We looked at all of our options and weighed each one carefully, considering which would be best for our clients. In the end, independence had so many advantages over traditional firms that it was the obvious route, but what wasn’t so obvious was which independent firm to choose. As we learned more about the resources, management team and firm culture at Steward Partners and Raymond James, our decision became clear.”

“We’re excited to join the Steward family and to become partners in the new Paramus office,” said Iannaccone. “Our paramount consideration in deciding to move was having the freedom and flexibility to manage our clients’ wealth. Being able to utilize either a wealth management or advisory approach means that their interests come first.” 

“Our clients’ interests were key to our decision to become more independent in our businesses’ development and expansion, without being overwhelmed with the day-to-day activities of running a company,” added Sarama. “Steward Partners, with the support and platform of Raymond James, offers the perfect combination of resources and independence, which made this decision the right choice for our clients, our businesses and our families.”

“I’ve spent my entire professional life at the wirehouse firms,” said Larson. “I’ve watched the industry make a significant shift to independence and realized that it’s the future of wealth management. Steward’s model provides me with both the independence and the infrastructure to do what is in the best interests of my clients.”

Since November 2013, Steward Partners has added over 70 advisors with nearly $58 million in trailing 12-month production and over $7.75 billion in assets under management. Earlier this year, Steward Partners announced the opening of the firm’s ninth, tenth and eleventh locations, in Clearwater, Fla., Boston and Baltimore respectively.
